Hello. My name is Bella. This coming summer will be my 13th summer going to Camp Wabikon! I have been going to camp for a LONG time, and people always ask me questions like "what's the very best thing about camp?". In all my camp years, the answer has always been the same. The people! Life-long friends from all around the world. Now you might be confused, you might say that you have friends everywhere too, so why are camp friends so special? Because camp brings out the best in you. It makes you look past everyone's fancy cloths, and the brands, and where theyâre from, and leaves behind the real them. That's why camp friends are best!
My mom says "you are the best version of yourself at camp" and it's true. I love how the people at camp aren't only from Canada. They are from all over. And I mean ALL over! This year, I had friends from Australia, California, Israel, Mexico, and the United States! I also had counsellors from Spain, USA, Italy and Australia.
At school this year I had to do a test of about 28 countries around the world, and I found myself remembering cabin 5's fun rest hours where we would play cards. Except two of us spoke Spanish, two of us English and two of us French! All in all camp is an amazing experience where you can meet the most amazing people, and learn the most important life lessons. I hope I never stop going to camp.
